I have always been a visual person.
I learn well by looking at images, by drawing things, by seeing things.
When we speak of manifesting, we also must speak of creating the vibration to manifest. I use the analogy of gardening. We know what plants we’d like. We have the seeds. We loosen up the soil. We get everything ready. Then we plant the seeds, and tend to them.
A few years ago I was in a course ‘Intuitive Mastery‘ given by Lori Lipten and one of the sections was using to use chakra balancing, intention setting, and guided journeying as the set up to creating an inspired vision board. I will say that today I jump right into my intuitive stream when doing my vision board, and it is an ever evolving process.
I will usually get an inspiration, or a message. (This wonderful little image to the right is typical of a message that comes into my awareness in perfect timing and which helps guide me in the new direction)
It says, for instance, it is time to revisit your vision board, and to pick out that which has either come to pass to allow room for more growth, to remove that which no longer serves the highest good as we constantly evolve, or sometimes ‘here is the blueprint for your new board’.
So, when I am teaching ‘How to Create a Vision Board’, we necessarily have to get into the art of preparation. Preparing the self, preparing the energy, preparing the space, gathering the materials, even writing out the new blueprint or skeleton. Over time I have come to a sort of hybrid board — a blend of pictures and words. I have also evolved in that I no longer use magazines for my images, but instead use the iPhone and an app called Print Studio (it’s an inexpensive way to get high quality images on durable card stock, in sizes that work really well in my hands).
I maintain vision boards both at home and at work, and both up until this time were only slightly different. Recently however I was given the intuitive message to ‘focus the office vision board on the office, it is currently too unfocused’. Furthermore, I was given the insight to connect actual ‘business milestones’ with actual ‘business necessities’ then to blend in the visions, but to connect them with business realities. In the past I noticed I would manifest something, but then almost always there was a blowback, a setback, or as if there was a net neutral transaction. As such, I have felt stuck in this one endeavour for a few years. My intuition tells me that this new board gives me a chance to manifest when appropriate, and also to enlist my staff and coworkers to be creative and joy-filled but with a cast iron grip on the realities of business, something I had not done in the past.
And so there it is, above. I am looking forward to seeing how this board functions, and grateful for the divine spirit dwelling within. I am also grateful for my ability to share, and my desire to both experience a prosperous life, while also teaching others to do the same.
May you enjoy YOUR unique vision, and come to know YOUR inner voice. May it lead you to your fulfillment.
